Summary
Most fashion is designed in the world's richest countries, and made in the world's poorest. Who is really paying the price for trendy, low-cost clothing? Using the international fashion industry as a case study, this program helps students understand globalization, examining its causes and effects, pros and cons, and the role played by multinational corporations. The video goes inside homes and factories in Bangladesh to compare the lives of textile workers employed in large scale operations with those employed by a rural fair trade fashion initiative, and also considers the influence of concerned Western consumers in improving conditions for all.
